Vantage Point: Advancing Corporate Leadership & ESG Impact on 2021 Performance

A Corporate Leadership Conversation

Thursday March 04, 2021 | Original Broadcast

If the past twelve months are any indication, investor scrutiny of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) behaviors is expected to rise in 2021, with corporate leaders–including chief legal and social impact officers–playing a crucial role in enterprise policy amid calls for greater transparency and accountability in modern business. This conversation offers timely guidance from executives helping drive ESG organizational priorities. Where and how are key decision-makers leading change at their employers? What metrics do socially responsible investors value most when assessing organizational health? How impactful is an incoming Biden Administration or an ever-evolving social justice climate on immediate and long-term shareholder expectations? And what lessons has recent history taught us about corporate citizenship and social responsibility in our hyperconnected social media age?
